TMP 126 Pete Weiss: Thelonious Monster Lives
The co-founding drummer of Thelonious Monster discusses his history with the band beginning with the 80s post-punk Hollywood scene that included the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, and Manny Chevrolet’s Too Free Stooges. It’s a stroll down memory lane filled with pitfalls and highlights that ultimately leads to redemption. The Troubled Men remain unredeemed.
